4.0 out of 5 stars BLOND AMBITION 7 Nov 2003
Format:DVD
SHOCK WAVES has for years been a often referenced, reviewed and beloved little gem of a zombie film that could. But it was also hard to find on video for years, and most people had to make due with dupes or copies taken off late night television, but no more. SHOCK WAVES on DVD is finally here, and it is just about perfect. Presented in widescreen with a touched up print, and a host of extra's (a fun and informative commentary, a photo gallery that not only gives us some insight into the behind the scene work, but also clues us in on some of the footage missing from the film - plus a great selection of poster art and production notes), SHOCK WAVES is sure to please any fan of the zombie genre without question. My only complaint about the film is that, while it builds atmosphere, suspense and a general feeling of unease, it is up until the last third of the film a bit of a bore. It seems that the Nazi Zombies are everywhere and yet nowhere as well, and Peter Cushing, a true star, actually has nothing more than a cameo role here (spending most of his times either in shadows, long shots or on the run). But when the film finally cuts loose, it's a thrill ride up until the final frame that leaves you grappling to turn on the lights quickly and check under the bed, just to be sure. A powerful film that has actually inspired a "tribute" from Peter Benchley, the author of JAWS, in his novel WHITE SHARK, which is almost a novelization of this film. For fans, SHOCK WAVES is a must, no collection can be complete without it. For those new to the zomibe wasteland, SHOCK WAVES is a slow starter that once going won't stop until you're good and scared.

4.0 out of 5 stars .......................not just for hair. 31 May 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The first, and best, of the Nazi Zombie movies, the others being: Zombie Lake (1981), The Chilling (1981) and Oasis of the Zombies (1983), SHOCK WAVES arrives courtesy of Blue Underground as a Region 0 disc.

When a group of American tourists get lost during a boating holiday, and run into Hammer favourite, the always watchable, Peter Cushing, sporting a facial scar and talking with a clipped German accent, you know you are in for quite a ride.

Unlike other walking dead movies, these zombies hunt in packs, not slow moving crowds, and kill only for the sake of killing. Mean. Granted, the majority of the cast deserve killing, anyway.

Throw in Forties horror star, John Carradine as the crusty sea captain, and you've got yourself one creepy little horror film.

Zombie fans used to Romero style gore may find this tame by comparison to the great zombie man's epics, but it is the unease you feel during, and after, that makes this worth a viewing.

The disc is presented in widescreen, remastered from the director's own print, and even though this is grainy, it does not detract too much. Nice set of extras; trailer, still gallery.

You'll never view the beach on holiday the same again......

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a "Video Nazi" 28 Dec 2013
By JONESY
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I must say i was expecting more from this film, which in effect, is a timid little outing with no bloodshed and no reason for it to be an 18 cert.
It's quite annoying in the way that the score often rises to a crescendo to lead you to believe that something horrific is going to happen then something banal happens.
Cushing is just OK in a poor role for him, and the rest of the cast sleepwalk through it.
The heroines reaction to the death of one of the characters seems to be one of boredom which is really strange.
Although quite creepy in parts, the lack of scares and inventive kill sequences let this film down imo.
This is a film that could definitely have benefitted from the use of a few SS daggers and Schmeissers.
This film is crying out for a remake.

4.0 out of 5 stars Shock n roll. 23 May 2009
Format:VHS Tape
Definetly one for the collector,good atmos and Peter Cushing is a far cry from his Baron Frankenstein days in it,simply bizaare,the nazi zombies look effective and menacing,grotesque at times,it probably won't appeal to the fulci/ romero zombie lovers enmasse but,definetly an icon to savour.
